After weeks of anticipation and complete secrecy, the day finally arrived for Uncle Barry to visit his niece at school.
In case you are new to Gaslamp, my son Alex shares a 5th grade classroom with Barry Zito's niece. Hence the Uncle Barry moniker. About a month ago Alex swore me to secrecy and told me that his class would be getting a special visitor. Yesterday was the day! Alex was ready with our camera. Their teacher had to close the window blinds and logged the hour with Uncle Barry as "Physics" so no other class knew about it. Not an incorrect topic actually since he demonstrated his different pitch grips and talked to them about how/why each one spins and travels differently to the plate. He posed for pictures, signed autographs and answered the kids questions. Come to the pizza party on Feb 10th to hear Alex tell you more!
